We gave it a D

Arrested Development‘s Will Arnett plays the son of a judge who has consistently thrown the book at a career criminal (Dax Shepard). When the judge dies before said criminal can exact his revenge, the perp fixes on his offspring. ”He gets me into jail,” explains Arnett. ”Then he realizes that it’s his destiny to get back into jail and mess with my life.” The actor says you can expect lingering male-on-male Eskimo kisses, shower scenes, and a low-budget indie vibe. Jokes Arnett: ”We only had, like, $4 million. And $3,999,000 was spent getting me.”
